Tuesday Teasers: YA Science Fiction and Non-Fiction Teasers


Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should  Be Reading. Anyone can play along, so I thought  I  would play for fun! Just do the following
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page (well, we cheat and choose specific ones)
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on  that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away!   You don’t  want  to  ruin the  book for others!)
  • Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can  add the book to their TBR  Lists  if they  like your teaser.   

Gerard's:
He knew what they needed: someone to steer them from the path that had been so easy for him to take, the one that now ended at the front curb of the building where he grew up, parked in his wheelchair, watching the world go by. He just needed a way to reach them.
From pages 3-4 of A Chance To Win by Jonathan Schuppe.

Karen's:
Kira turned to the open hole, eyeing the makeshift support beam nervously, when a shape in the darkness stopped her cold.
She hadn't seen it before--it had been behind the stone.
From page 37 of Partials by Dan Wells. (YA science fiction)

Why did you let me be born? I would rather have died before birth and been carried to the grave without ever breathing.
From Job 10:18-19 of the Extreme Faith God's Word Knows No Bounds Contemporary English Version of The Bible.


Happy Reading!

  4. Gerard's has me quite intrigued. How'd he end up in a wheelchair?

    Gotta wonder why the narrator doesn't want to be born in Karen's.

  10. I like the first teaser. It's not easy to steer oneself from a path taken, especially when that path ended in a wheelchair. Thanks for sharing those teasers and dropping by our blog!
